2018 Giving Challenge

Mark your calendars for May 1st and 2nd, when you’ll have the opportunity to help our students and families continue to thrive by donating to the Giving Challenge, presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County—with each gift strengthened by The Patterson Foundation.

What’s particularly exciting this year is that The Patterson Foundation will provide a 1:1 match for all unique donations—up to $100 per donor, per organization—without  a limit to the number of individual matches from unique donors (individuals with a personal credit/debit card) a nonprofit can receive during these 24 hours.

“Be the One” to support our students and families of UnidosNow.

Your donation is crucial. We are asking for your support so more students and families can take advantage of our programs.

You can continue to make a difference because your contribution can help us establish the following programs in even more Sarasota and Manatee county schools:

  • Our Future Leaders Academy for Girls (FLAG), and our Future Leaders Academy for Middle Schoolers (FLAMS), which enable low-income elementary and middle-school students and their families learn about the path to higher education and develop critical skills.
  • Our Families Together Program equip parents of low-income, first generation students with the knowledge and skills for learning how to succeed in the education system in the United States by integrating indispensable life and language skills and building social capital.
  • Our Future Leaders Academy provides Manatee and Sarasota high-school seniors with the tools to successfully be admitted to college, as they pursue their academic and professional journey.
  • THE GANAS program informs and supports those students wanting to pursue technical school, a two- or four-year college, or the military. Aptly named, the translation of “ganas”is grit or desire to succeed, which is what our students embody.

On behalf of the UnidosNow students, parents, mentors, volunteers, staff, and Board, we appreciate all your support and the difference you’re making in so many people’s lives.

Please support UnidosNow during this Giving Challenge—from noon to noon on May 1st and 2nd—and help empower our students and their families. Stay tuned on May 1st at 12 p.m. when the donation link will be live to participate and donate during the 2018 Giving Challenge.

As in the past, thank you for your unselfish commitment. Together we can Be the One.

This Campaign has ended. No more pledges can be made.
